I just joined your group, & my name is Shelby. My mom & I are active in many areas of the animal rights movement, & protecting wolves is one issue we have been passionate about for years.
We can all breathe a sigh of relief that Sara Palin didn't get into office, but she still wields power in Alaska, & has vowed to continue aerial hunting to slaughter wolves. I'm not a violent pup, but if I could get my paws on her...
ANYway, I'm happy to find you all, I recently became pals with Lady, which is where I saw your group. My mom & I have been members of Defenders of Wildlife for many years, and highly recommend that you look into them, they are a very fine, dedicated group.
Well, that's all for now... except one more thing~ please, if you have a minute... check out the link & petition on my page (right above my Dogster badge, right side of the page about midway down) to help our brothers & sisters in Korea & the Philippines. Horrendous cruelty is going on there, torturing dogs (AND cats) before slaughtering them for meat. It is really quite disturbing, their fur is also used and can be found on the very toys (some of us) buy for our own dogs & cats. The pain and agony these poor dogs are suffering is staggering. Their limbs are pulled out of their sockets, tied up behind their backs, jagged tin cans rammed onto their muzzles, and the dogs being used for meat have their fur burned off with blow torches. These people believe that the more a dog suffers, the better he will taste, & the more "virile" the men who eat him or her will be. "Officially" these dog meat markets are illegal, but just as here in the U.S., animal protection laws are all but ignored and rarely enforced. All of this brutal carnage goes on unhindered, in front of their terrified companions, while children walking by watch, & grow up to be desensitized to this atrocious cruelty. PLEASE don't turn your head away, we all have to stand together to end this insanity. Thanks for listening, I hope to hear from you all!
Have a safe, HAPPY Valentine's Day!
Hugs & wags,
